World-renowned jazz guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli has established himself as one of the prime interpreters of the American songbook and beyond, bringing to his work the cool jazz flavour of his sublime guitar playing and singing.

The consummate entertainer started exploring jazz guitar in his teens with his father, jazz guitar legend Bucky Pizzarelli, going on to perform with many jazz greats including Benny Goodman, Les Paul, Zoot Sims, and Frank Sinatra, whose international tour he opened for in 1993. Since then, the 1999 Swing Journal Readers Poll Jazz Vocalist of the Year has toured throughout the US, Europe, South America and Japan, performing classic pop, jazz and swing, while setting the standard for stylish modern jazz.

For Pizzarelli, his hero and foundation was Nat King Cole and the comparison of Pizzarelli's band to Cole's iconic trio is the highest of compliments. "I've always said in my concerts that Nat King Cole is why I do what I do," he says, "We aren't trying to copy him. His sound was singular and inspired. I've always said we’re an extension, a 21st century version of what that group was."
